Confocal image of Xenopus XL177 cultured cells stained for microtubules (green) and Xklp1 (red). The image shows that Xklp1 is nuclear in interphase. It is associated with the chromosomes (at the spindle poles in the anaphase spindle shown) throughout mitosis and also accumulates at the spindle mid-zone during anaphase. See related paper by Vernos, I., Raata, J., Hirano, T., Heasman, J., Karsenti, E. and Wylie, C. 1995 Cell 81:117-127. Image contributed by Isabelle Vernos.View links to recent articles about Xklp1 and other mitotic/meiotic kinesins.
